Maple Brook Golf Course, previously a private course named Charlotte Country Club, is now a public. This 9 hole golf course is located in Charlotte, Michigan.
Maple Brook Golf Course first opened for play in 1926. The course was designed by Tom Bendenlow.
The course plays to a 9-hole par of 36 and maximum 9-hole distance of 3,310 yards. The course sits on rolling terrain with a creek and mature trees. Players will be face doglegs, sand bunkers, secluded par 3's, and demanding par 4's. The course also offers a driving range and large practice green.

Saw this 1926, 9 hole Tom Bendelow designed course 45 minutes away and decided go play this morning. He designed my home course Cascades GC in 1929 and I can see the familiar design pattern throughout the course. The 90 years of Country Club roots are still in place here with the maintenance/conditions/staff since going Public a few years back. They have a mix of five (5) tees from 3,310yds / 36.5 / 125 down to 2,525yds / 33.0 / 120 on this Par 36 Links style layout, so you can pick your comfort level of play. There are no forced carries so that relaxes you on the tee boxes. I played the Black tees and found the yardage on some hole was longer (50yds on #6) than the score card indicated. The #2 hole 375yd Dogleg left Par 4 requires a 240yd drive to get past the corner trees from the tips to see the green. You'll find good manicured fairways/traps/greens where you land on them and no real surprises when hitting. The #6 460yd Par 4 was playing 510yds from the Blacks (7hcp) and I would have put it being #1hcp based on the wind we had today. This was a great conditioned course for the $15 9w/cart (2hrs) and shooting 40 w/17putts. I look forward to returning and playing a full 18 holes and bring some of my Senior friends.
